How can I span my LAN subnet over MPLS using two Watchguard firewalls?
Posted on 2009-05-14
We have a VMWare ESX 3.5 environment at head office with a DR server in a co-lo. We want to use Vizioncore vReplicator to backup servers to the co-lo. The two sites are connected via a 10Mb MPLS routed link and I need to extend my local subnet so that the DR server has an IP address on our subnet for vReplicator to work fully.
We have a Watchguard X750e at head office and was told by Watchguard that if we bought an X550e for the co-lo, the Watchguards could span the subnet over the MPLS.
Now (after we've puchased the unit) Watchguard are backtracking and referring this to the
US. A week and a half later and I still don't have an answer.
Does anyone know if this is possible? If not with Watchguards, is there any other hardware of software that will let me do this?
It's very frustrating as we've made a significant investment on Watchguard's advice, only for them to mess us about now we're ready to implement their solution.
Any advice, greatly appreciated.
